Learn how an impressive reduction of biofilm without conventional biocide treatment could be achieved in an RO plant of a pulp and paper mill. Thanks to Kuriverter® IK-110 the working conditions of the plant improved.
Biofilm Enables Streamlining of Wastewater Treatment
Simultaneous nitrification and denitrification means wastewater treatment can take place in a single tank A membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR) is a revolutionary wastewater treatment and reuse solution that cuts the energy requirements of the aeration cycle by as much as 90% compared to legacy activated sludge systems, for which aeration is by far the largest energy expense. Its low energy requirement allows MABR to be operated by alternative energy sources, making it ideal for distributed, or decentralized,...
Containerized Wastewater Treatement Plant - Military - Case Study
Problem: The Department of Defense needed a deployable, autonamous, containerized, rapid start up wastewater treatment plant for remote locations. Process: PCDworks designed advanced controls, sensors, and logging capabilities, and implemented a LabVIEW-based control system, complete with a host of remote pressure, depth, and flow sensors and pumps.Result:The Water Phoenix is an attached-growth portable wastewater treatment system that uses Submerged Fixed-Bed Biofilm Reactor (SFBBR) technology. AWS` fixed-bed...
How Does the Membrane Aerated Biofilm Reactor Work?
Aerobic digestion and nitrification-denitrification work together thanks to an innovative membrane system One of the most talked-about new wastewater treatment technologies is the membrane aerated biofilm reactor (MABR), which is revolutionizing WWT. The discussion, however, has mainly focused on issues like MABR technology’s low operating expenses, high energy efficiency, low maintenance, scalability, and its neighborly low noise and odor levels. What’s discussed less is exactly what goes on...
A framework for good biofilm reactor modeling practice (GBRMP)
A researcher or practitioner can employ a biofilm model to gain insight into what controls the performance of a biofilm process and for optimizing its performance. While a wide range of biofilm-modeling platforms is available, a good strategy is to choose the simplest model that includes sufficient components and processes to address the modeling goal. In most cases, a one-dimensional biofilm model provides the best balance, and good choices can range from hand-calculation analytical solutions, simple spreadsheets,...
